Summer has come and gone.


Summer 2011 has been a non-event, which is now officially over and done with. The clocks have gone back and we get a consolation prize; a prolonged Sunday.

Yesterday was wet, misty and very autumnal.

On the way to the station.

At the station.

Avenue in Kongens Have (King's Park) Copenhagen, Denmark

King's Park.



Walking through the park a nursery rhyme popped into my head and would not go away.

One misty, moisty morning,
when cloudy was the weather,
'Twas then I met an old man,
clad all in leather,
clad all in leather,
with cap under his chin,
saying how do you,
and how do you,
and how do you do again.


A relic from my childhood and one I still love. 

The following version is just as appealing for adults though.

  1. Nice video.. :-)

    Back in university, we had annual 'European Night' where the European students performed traditional songs and dances. I really enjoyed the performances.

    This video reminds me of those performances and I enjoyed watching it a lot.

    Thank you for sharing it.. :-)

  2. Dear Orcalion, thanks for taking the time to make a comment. One of the greatest joys of modern technology is that we can share each other's traditions much more easily.

  3. Great photos - make me want to visit, even in wet, misty, Autumnal weather! The nursery rhyme is new to me - and I thought I knew them all!

    Thanks for commenting on my (occasional) blog.
